What would you recommend to others who want to be fit and healthy?

I would recommend visualizing what you desire, write down your goals and slowly take action towards those fit and healthy goals. To achieve a vision of becoming fit and healthy, you need to incorporate proper nutrition, and applying both cardiovascular and strength training exercises. Also, being fit and healthy is not just about appearances, it’s a state of mind!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness doesn't only positively influence my life but it also improves the quality of my life! For years I have dealt with depression and being able to exercise has been extremely helpful. Exercise releases the body's feel-good chemical called endorphins which creates this euphoric high. It helps with your brain function by boosting blood flow to the brain and helps to keep my mind sharp. I also love the feeling of working out, getting in that zone and seeing the results of my hard work!

If you were the next Ms Health and Fitness, what would you do with $20,000?

Proper mindset ~ When I do win Ms Health and Fitness, I plan to take the $20,000 to pay off some bills, continue my education, give money to my parents and also help my brother and his family. Thankfully, my brother and his family are about to embark on a new journey where they were given a gift from God - their first child together...my soon-to-be, Niece.😁
